It is no secret to anyone living here that Arabs in Israel can go where they please, when they please, with little or nothing to fear from Israeli Jews. This is evident by the fact that public venues in Jewish-dominated towns and neighborhoods are always so full of Israeli Arabs.
The converse is not true. Israeli Jews must be extremely careful entering Arab-dominated areas, and are even barred from going into some towns and neighborhoods (particularly in Jerusalem) for fear they would be lynched.
Kalman Liebskind is an investigative reporter for the Israeli daily Ma'ariv. He has broken major national stories, and so is well known to most Israelis, and certainly to the police.
In his most recent column, Liebskind recounted how while driving to his home in a central Israeli town, he and his family came under attack from Arab stone throwers.
The assault occurred just a hundred yards from Liebskind's home in Gimzu, a suburban neighborhood of Lod, which sits adjacent to Ben Gurion International Airport.

The police arrested the Arab Liebskind was able to identify but soon called him to the police station to supposedly clarify the information. They then arrested this well known journalist because the Arab had told them Liebskind had threatened him with a weapon. Friends had warned Liebskind something like this would happen. The police in Israel are afraid of violence against themselves if they aren't nice to Arabs. Liebskind now advises people to avoid going to police with Arab problems.
This is like political correctness gone insane combined with Mexican style gang activity.
How can Israel survive if they are attacked from within and without? During the previous wars they fought to defend themselves from Arab neighbors the Arab citizens of Israel did not act against Israel. If you read the article you will find that it does not appear to be what would happen now.
I didn't know this. Not a good situation. Thanks for posting it.
